The Microfactory: All-In-One Milling, Etching, 3D-Printing Machine


Thu, Aug 29th, 2013 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

Currently seeking your financial support on Kickstarter, the Microfactory is an all-in-one networkable, four-color 3D printer, etcher and milling machine that occupies a relatively small amount of space.

Makers making for makers: The Microfactory project began one year ago when four friends, longtime members of an independent maker space in Somerville, Massachusetts called Artisans Asylum, came together to create a better prototyping and machining that was easy to use, self-contained, and capable of a truly impressive list of tasks. They independently financed the development and testing of five full versions of the Microfactory, resulting in the exceptional product featured here. The Microfactory was entirely conceived, designed and built by people who have spent their lives around machines, who wanted to make something truly revolutionary and highly usable for makers everywhere.
